Warm yourself up on a cold day with a nice big bowl of pork noodle soup from brand new noodle and dumpling bar in Down Town Silver Spring, DC foodie suburb. It wasn’t easy to pick out of so many different noodle soups on their menu. It really all came down to the most fun name ever, Crunching Tiger Hidden Noodle Soup. Its the name that calls out to you or order it. Its a big bowl with so much that we had some trouble finishing it. Could be also because we had far too many dumplings for appetizer. Large long noodles with a lot of soft pork strings in chicken broth. Flavor wise all the different toppings and broth were very balanced and nothing seem to compete or overpower anything. Pickled mustard sounded so fun, but not really sure if we could taste it. Broth had this slight mustardy flavor kick to it so it could be that. Bamboo shoots ad crispy garlic added a nice little crunch to the soup. Now big question, will I be able to run on tree tops and have amazing martial arts skills after eating this soup? Defiantly will be back, especially on a cold day during winter to try 6 other noodle soups.
